A wonderful follow up from the previous book! I expected Loki’s story to be good, but even so it still exceeded those expectations of mine!
In the 5th book of the Mythean Arcana series, we find out more about Loki’s past. Loki, apart from being the famous God of Mischief, is also one of Ian’s closest friends – if not the only one. He’s trying to stop a prison meant for gods to be built, and he enlists not only Ian and Fiona to make his plan work, but also the one woman he can’t forget, Freya’s daughter Sygin – who now goes by the name Sylvi and works for the Praesidium.
I think Linsey Hall has me thoroughly hooked with her work. It’s official if it wasn’t already, and it’s a damn fact.
Because, unlike the previous books where there were tons of action and suspense, and we also read some really good love scenes on the side as a bonus, Loki’s story was much deeper in plot, and much more twisted. Not to mention much more emotional. See, Loki did want to just stop the completion of the Labyrinth. He also wanted Sylvi back, when she wanted nothing to do with him, and that provided for numerous dramatic encounters and tension risings.
I don’t know if this is the end of the series. I don’t know if there will be a next book in the future. But I do know that, if this was the end, it was pretty damn satisfying. And if it’s not, I cannot wait to see what else Ms. Hall has up her sleeve next!
